EUR/USD

The Euro is trading lower against the U.S. Dollar on Tuesday after the release of a report that showed Euro Zone inflation held steady as expected last month, taking a break in what is likely to be a temporary but sharp spike in consumer prices in the coming months.

Perhaps helping to put a lid on the Euro is chatter saying instead of tightening on higher inflation, the ECB may actually ease further, possibly as soon as its March 11 meeting, to counter a recent rise in nominal yields, which threatens to choke off growth by making borrowing more expensive.

At 13:36 GMT, the EUR/USD is trading 1.2027, down 0.0022 or -0.18%.

“Headline inflation will almost certainly rise further in the coming months, to around 2% due to further rises in food and energy price inflation,” ABN Amro said in a note before the data release. “However, it will be very likely to a one off…leading to a sharp drop in inflation as the disinflationary pressures from the economic shock come to the fore.”
